Completely different now - worth calling in

Called in Friday afternoon 15th Jan based on Trip Advisor reviews. We love the changes that have been made to how this pub is run. Great job by the new owners for creating a relaxed place to sit and have a beer. The typical Piper Street pretension is gone - hooray! ! Great service, fantastic... read more

Had an enjoyable lunch here recently with my parents. Food was reasonably priced and delicious. The young man who was bartender/waiter was friendly and helpful when choosing one of the many boutique beers on offer. Would recommend and will definitely be visiting again.

We heard it was a good place to dine so we dropped in at lunch time. It was just awful. The burger was raw. Sent it back. Flies in restaurant. Toilet stank. Hot water tap removed. Service slow, even though it was not very busy. Tables were not all that clean and spiderwebs were hanging overhead.They did refund the price... More

After visiting the Royal George with friends a few years ago I thought it might be a nice place to visit with my sister and our children. A Monday night in a very quiet Kyneton with limited options available we went for dinner at the hotel. The George boasts a large space with plenty of seating in 3 rooms. Also... More

My husband and I went here for lunch and it was awful. We were seated in the restaurant but after looking at the menu decided that the bar menu looked better. Bar service was so slow even though there was only a half dozen tables. Waited for 35 minutes for our lemon pepper calamari main that we were sharing as... More

Wandering the streets of Kyneton, and detected the dulcet tones of some great lounge jazz from a duo. Add in s ridiculously large range of beers on tap and we're here for the evening.

I've dined here many times over the years and returned simply because the food was absolutely brilliant, as was the wine list. On my most recent trip to Kyneton I took a group of friends here and we were all bitterly disappointed. I found out new owners had recently taken over and it certainly showed. Our meals were average at... More

Thanks for taking the time to do a review - I cannot reiterate enough - we are no longer a fine dining restaurant - we do not claim to be - we are a pub with great pub food - and yes the restaurant is being phased out and being turned into bar areas - perhaps if you had gone... More

Dropped by for a Sunday arvo lunch before going for stroll along Campaspe River. Ordered from the bar menu which was a little less painful on the pocket - though the restaurant menu looked divine. Service was fast and friendly. We ate outside and they even brought out a bowl of water for our dog. My hubby had the spicy... More

What a great location to catch up with friend after a long week. The bar menu is great and a great venue where you can catch up with friend after the week and have few. Huge range of beers on tap to choose from that can give you variety for the whole night. Can not recommend this place high enough!!
